M&C On the Road

Team Virginia Beach attended Connect Marketplace 2017 in New Orleans and spent time connecting and networking with colleagues and prospective clients. This photo, taken 8/21/17, reflects the amazing partnership between the Virginia Beach CVB, our hotel and VTC partners, and current and future clients.





Virginia Tourism Corporation and CVBs from across the Commonwealth hosted more than 200 guests at an after-hours dessert reception in the Sheraton’s Waterbury Ballroom in New Orleans on Aug. 22 during Connect Association’s Specialty, Corporate and Sport Events conference.

Thanks to CVB M&C sales reps.. Lisa MacArthur & Linda Eisan for all their hard work – looking good in your VTC Beach Lovers shirts ladies!


M&C on the Road

Members of the CVB Meetings & Conventions (M&C) team traveled to Chicago recently for a sales mission and while there, attended the annual Chicago Association Forum Honors Gala where they sponsored a photo opportunity with the attendees. Nearly 100 meeting industry professionals stopped to have their photo taken with a CVB branded beach cruiser which was later given away in a drawing. The lucky winner was Becky Perry, CFO of the American Association of Endodontists, shown here with Todd. Check out the photo gallery!
